Welcome to Permablitz Melbourne!

Autumn planting guide

During autumn the days will become shorter and temperatures cooler. Plant around the autumn equinox for a winter harvest, but there are a variety of short term vegetables that can be harvested after just 4 weeks!

Permablitz and COVID-19

Permablitz wants to make sure that we do all we can to take care of our volunteers and hosts, and this means we cannot put them in a position where they may find themselves at risk as part of one of our activities.

Permablitz #220 – Ferntree Gully

“The success of the garden should not always be measured by how much food we grow, or the number of volunteers we have at working bees, but rather how people feel when they visit our garden. It’s about community, big or small, coming together to learn, share and build friendships.”

Chives

Chives are an easy to grow perennial herb, and are well known for adding an onion or garlic flavour to omelettes, salads, soups and sauces.

Permablitz #219 – Coburg

On a cool November day, a team of 25 willing helpers completed the full makeover in 6 hours – giving James a more sustainable, permaculture-based garden he can enjoy for years to come.

Mallow

Mallow can be found almost anywhere in Melbourne, and is a highly nutritious edible weed. Get into it!
